digitalmars.D - UNA Now Supports D

The current level of support is 'basic', unless you have the ctags patch
floating around the Internet, which enables the more advanced features like
go-to-definition, structure view, object hierarchy, and type-based method
suggestions.

Basic support is actually not so basic and includes all the following features:

*Rich syntax highlighting (better than anything else I've seen so far for D);
*A large collection of Source Snippets, many contributed by members of this
forum.
*File templates for common D constructs.
*Detection of errors and warnings from the D compiler, so you can jump to them
with one click.
*All the language-agnostic features of UNA, including seamless version control,
text-based auto-complete, regular expression search & replace, instant
searches, incremental search, block editing, and so forth.

The solo coding edition of UNA is 100% free, so grab your copy from
http://www.n-brain.net.

Suggested improvements to syntax highlighting, source snippets, and file
templates are all welcome.

Regards,

John

Hi!

I tried to install it, but everytime I start the installer I get a  
"Couldn't open (USERPATH)/.UNA/java-windows/bin/(FILE): permission denied"  
error (everytime it seems with another file). I'm using XP SP3 german,  
system partition is J: instead of C:, firewall trusts the installer. Is  
there a known problem with certain systems?

(Sorry to use the D NG for that, but I didn't want to register just for  
that question)

You can just ignore that - I should have remembered that this is Windows.  
After a reboot it OF COURSE installd. But then - why shouldn't it? It's  
the most logical thing in the world that everything works after a reboot.  
That's why this is my 4th reboot today (seriously) - I have no problems  
today (anymore) with my system. And now I will just quickly reboot again  
to make sure that this mail will be sent with 100% certainty.

Glad the issue resolved itself. :-)

Now go out and buy a Mac. I only restart for updates -- otherwise my system is
always running. :-)

Hi Mike,

I filed a ticket just now (though we don't officially support non-English
layouts, primarily because of in-place incremental search, it's something we're
working toward and have partial support for).

Regards,

John

 Ok, I looked up the keyboard shortcuts - that explains it.
 That's a bit of a problem.
 
 ctrl-alt-7 = {
 ctrl-alt-8 = [
 ctrl-alt-9 = ]
 ctrl-alt-0 = }
 
 It would be better to automatically rebind the focussing hotkeys to  
 ctrl-shift or something if you detect a german layout (or any layout with  
 an altgr key, which is most european keyboard layouts).

Hi Mike, I'm not exactly sure what's going on here, but the problem may be related to your non-standard system setup. The BitRock installer used by UNA creates a log file in your temp directory -- send that to me by e-mail and I'll take a look. Should have you up and running sometime today. With some security settings in place, Vista may not allow the creation of '.exe' files, but we've never seen that issue on XP before. Regards, John

You know what's funny? After I sent that mail one of my auto-updates kicked in and needed another reboot (seriously). That's number 5 for today. I think my XP is up to something. I would gladly switch, but it'll be rather to Ubuntu than to Mac :) Anyway, UNA looks nice. I'm toying around with it now. One thing that is irritating is that the opening curly brace with german keyboard layout sends the cursor to the chat box (doesn't happen when I switch to english). I think you should fix that - it's really annoying. I think you're somehow misinterpreting the altgr key (which isn't present on english keyboards), since it doesn't happen when I press ctrl-alt-7, but it happens when I press altgr-7. -Mike -- Using Opera's revolutionary e-mail client: http://www.opera.com/mail/
